I only watched from 6:30 - 7:30 as I had to go to work, but I was fascinated as to see how Chris (and Aled) works the desk.
I'm a bit sad like that..... That jingle machine looks a pretty decent bit of kit!!!!!

Geek moment alert...

I think that desk might only be half the usual kit too. From comments Chris and a few other DJs have made on OBs (Greg James in Belfast last week), some of the controls are done from the studio or OB truck. I'm guessing Chris has got a few basic faders and the cartwall, Aled is doing the music and the rest of the buttons otherwise done by CM are being done either from the OB truck or London studio.

Edit: Inserted Greg James-specifics

Its great watching them all when on tour. But I think that it would be nice if they could do something similar when they are back in the Studio.
I've seen plenty of vids on YouTube and I know they did something similar at the start of the Year, but not too many people (me included) fancied booting the computer up to watch the team until they go to work.... Where as this is brilliant, switch TV on, press red button and viola!
Plus, they are "at home" in the studio and we can see what actually goes on in the Studio aswell.... Does Dave check Twitter on his phone or on the Studio PC's during records lol... (yes, I was one of those people that Dave mentioned had tweeted him this morning!!!!!!!)
One question though... Will there be a Golden Hour on Friday? I do quite enjoy the Golden Hour, but I'm guessing that it will not be happening this week, in place he may do some special features involving the audience.
When Chris did One Big Belly in Blackpool 10 years ago (does anyone remember that??? I was there!!!!), he picked two people from the crowd, and they played Viaduct on stage, it was brilliant!!!!! .... Aled has spoke about suprises, could this be a possibility maybe?????????

It's great watching Chris work the cartwall etc. Even seeing Aled playing all the records and segue jingles etc. Just goes to show how much work goes in behind the scenes to prepare it all. Although it does look like Aled's main job is shuffling CDs around!

One thing I've noticed about watching the videos this week is with Aled's guides. How many sets of clothing has he got! In every shot he's wearing something different. It's hilarious. :D

Its disapointing that there isnt a highlights of the days show video on the website, or even a section of the show if that would be easier to do. I have hardly seen anything of the show this week other than quick bits before work.

Chris said that a highlights package was being played out after the 8am news (after Dom and Tina do the news from the OB truck the TV version plays out a live lounge recording or two rather than the records on the radio, presumably so they can get the audience in and warmed up/told about any housekeeping - the records might even be played in from London rather than from on the stage). I guess that might end up online at some point.

neilt0's done a great job recording/uploading the video, but I'd imagine there will be a compilation video of all the good stuff on Friday (if there isn't, I'd be very surprised and disappointed!).

Anyone know whether Dom and Tina will be on air tomorrow? There's a journalists' strike on across the Beeb by members of the NUJ, so (assuming they're members) it will be interesting to see whether they're at work or not.

They were. I managed to see some of the show today for the first time, it was very good.

I recorded all the shows from Freeview on my DVD recorder, but my PC doesn't have the power or the hard drive space to rip 3 five-and-a-half-hour shows. If someone has a super-computer who can do it, then maybe I could send the discs to them or something.

I've just uploaded and posted the links to all the edited audio AAA tour shows though.

I'd be happy to do that! I just upgraded my unRAID server to 16TB... :D

Well I'll happily post the discs to you once I've finished watching them. I'm currently about half-way through Wednesday's show, so it would be sometime next week. Like I said before though, most of the shows do have this weird millisecond thing every now and then where the picture flickers or something. It's not a major problem though, not for me anyway. And they were recorded on LP (long play), because they had to be. Great fun to watch though :D
